This is a beautiful dagger indeed. I just love those light grips and the blade is still in great shape
A few little nicks here and there, but a real nice one.
That scabbard is extremely clean as well.........
Very attractive NSKK. The color schemes on these are just great-the shiny black sheath with the silvery fittings and contrasted by the blonde wood grips. Very nice example of a scarcer maker.

Oh I have a weakness for blondes, beautiful color combination and contrast with this one, a real stand out in any collection.
Hi Ger...another rare maker IMO...you have better eyes than I do as you have possession of this dagger...what is it that Im seeing in the motto burnish?.....I cant say I ever came across a motto bearing that type of burnishing......and the scabbard ball appears to be a 1939 vintage...which is more rounder in appearance.

It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Like William mentioned. I also like the look of the handle together with the scabbard. Makes it stand out in a beautiful way.
Yep I have to agree with you there Mr H.. This dagger with lots of colours going on.. & I think nice blonde handle makes it more attractive..So well done young man.. Cheers Terry.
